The Cell Factory is one of the six Key Actions of the Quality of Life and Management of Human Resources Programme, which is part of the Fifth Framework Programme for RTD of the European Community (1998-2002). This book contains the summaries of the 126 RTD projects that were selected in the calls for proposals launched in 1999 and 2000. Together with (Volume 2) this covers the entirety of activities funded by the Cell Factory in FP5.

The objective of the Cell Factory is to support research activities that aim at the integration of innovative research and technologies with their exploitation by industry and/or other socio-economic entities in the fields of health, environment, agro-industry, agri-food and high value added chemicals. The Cell Factory promotes an environment in which scientific results can be rapidly exploited and transformed into products and processes of interest to society.
